My name is DW and I LOVE COLOR!!!
I love rainbows. A lot. So much so, someone once asked me if I was gay. I’m seriously confused. How can liking rainbows make me gay? If I were sexually interested in women, THAT would make me gay (maybe), but liking rainbows? NOT
AND rainbows are supposedly “girly” (like kittens, puppies and unicorns…give me a unicorn with a rainbow horn and my brain just might ‘splode). Aren’t I *supposed* to like them? I *am* a girl (shut up! Am so!)
Admittedly, I’m not overly feminine. I don’t dress like a fashionista (I go for comfort and function). I rarely, if ever [anymore], wear make up. And my idea of “doing my hair” is running a brush through it in the morning and then pulling the front back in a clip. But when the occasion calls for it, I *do* dress up. And most times enjoy it. But I “dress up” in comfortable fashion 😉
I have a large [golf] rainbow umbrella. I use it a lot. I brought it to work and someone asked me if I was gay. Um, no. I just like color. I especially like rainbows. Besides, golf umbrellas tend to walk. And I work in a very male dominated profession. Men don’t do, “small” umbrellas. They ALL have the big honkin’ golf umbrellas. And they have no qualms about “accidentally” picking up the wrong one and then just adopting it because it’s too hard to figure out who they
stole borrowed it from. A man’s gonna take one look at my bright, cheerful, full of color golf umbrella and go, “um, hells no. I’d rather get wet.” Umbrella safe. Huge smile for me? Mission accomplished. 🙂
I was actually thrown by the “accusation” and was overly aware of my rainbow obsession for the longest time. WHY?!
I haven’t a freakin’ clue.
I’m not gay. Even if I was, what difference does it make. I love me some rainbows! And I’m going to show my Rainbow Pride from here on out!
